In one of our most exciting Mater Cars for Cancer lotteries ever, we’re eager to announce we have secured one of Australia’s highly sought after Ford Mustang V8 Fastbacks.
In an odd twist of fate, as Ford welcomes the ‘stang to its Australian range, also up for grabs is one of HSV’s last ever Clubsport R8s.
Both are muscle cars which would have featured on posters in many a young kid’s room throughout the last few decades, and both are cars that many grownups would be very happy to be able to call their own.
Both have a rich motoring history based in motorsport and pure, unadulterated passion.
HSV Clubsport R8
HSV has been a landmark of Australian performance motoring excellence ever since its inception in 1988, when General Motors Holden and the British Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) group partnered to build on the foundation that was established with the Holden performance sedans created by Peter Brock’s Holden Dealer team.
After almost 3 decades of testing, learning, racing, engineering and evolving, HSV has become the poster child of Australian performance motoring, which has never been more evident than in the HSV Clubsport R8—a 6.2L, 340kW V8. Lauded by motoring journalists, adored by HSV die-hards and respected by almost everyone else (maybe not Ford fans), the HSV Clubsport R8 is an amazing prize that would look fantastic in anyone’s driveway.
Now for the new guy—the legendary Ford Mustang. The Mustang has been around for substantially longer than the Clubsport R8, with the first Mustang being officially unveiled in 1964. Since then, it has forged one of the strongest brand-followings seen in motoring. All over the world, there are dedicated Mustang clubs, even specific era Mustang clubs. The galloping pony is one of the most instantly recognisable symbols in motoring, and we’re about to see a lot more of it here in Australia.
Ford Australia has announced that they’ve already taken over 3,000 pre-orders and delivery times are pushing back to 2017. The buzz around the new Mustang range being released in Australia is crazy! But luckily, we have a 303kW Mustang V8 Fastback to give away to one lucky supporter, as well as $15,173 in gold bullion.
This could be your choice to make, simply by purchasing tickets in the latest Mater Cars for Cancer lottery No. 66.
Which will it be—the pony, or the lion?
